    Tooth extraction and bone showing...

    I had my tooth extracted on Tuesday. I have a bone about the same length on the extraction site on the outside of my gums. It is hurting and I am wondering if this may be normal and will come out. I have already gotten on small piece out, but this piece has gotten my gums sore and swollen. I can seem to move the piece to get it loose. Could this part of my bone and that is why it won't move or is it that long and needs time to work its way out to were I can pull it out on my own without the dentist's help. The extraction was not difficult, but I could hear a lot of cracking when he took the tooth out. I was by itself so I know that it was not from another tooth. If anyone can help me and tell me if it will work its way out by itself or do I need to go back to the dentist.
    Thank You
